The November 20, 2012, Richmond City Council Agenda/Packet is on the web. The link is
Items that are likely to attract discussion and controversy include:
APPROVE a resolution to provide for public safety in the Chevron Refinery rebuilding subsequent to the August 6, 2012, refinery fire - Mayor McLaughlin (620-6503).
RECEIVE a report from staff on the Marin Clean Energy Community Choice Aggregation Program regarding the source of energy and the "opt out" process for Richmond consumers - Councilmember Boozé (620-6593). (Continued from the November 13, 2012, City Council Meeting)
. Even though Richmond’s membership in the MEA is a done deal and provides an option for utility users to purchase electricity from either PG&E or higher percentage renewable electricity for MEA, both Booze and Bates continue to rty and undermine it at every opportunity.
DIRECT the city attorney to draft an ordinance to expand the "Ban the Box" policy to include contractors and vendors conducting business with the City of Richmond - Councilmember Beckles (620-6568).
This would extend to any vendor or contractor doing business with the City a ban on asking any employment applicant questions about previous criminal convictions.
